BACKGROUND Different aspiration techniques to retrieve bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) affect sample quality in healthy dogs. Studies evaluating these techniques in dogs with respiratory disease are lacking. OBJECTIVES To compare sample quality of BALF acquired by manual aspiration (MA) and suction pump aspiration (SPA). ANIMALS Eighteen client-owned dogs with respiratory disease. METHODS Randomized, blinded prospective clinical trial. Manual aspiration was performed with a 35-mL… CONTINUE READING
